Originally named Orpheus, this station was built specifically as a jump point for all travelers going to other galaxies. It was about the time they got into the station, the colonists, travelers or whoever else ended up there, realized they were truly orphans. Their families left behind would never be seen again in all probability. For many, the impact was far more shattering then they had ever thought their actions would be when they began.
The station also tended to look to many as a small girl with pigtails, maybe carrying a toy. The material used was strong enough to shield all the workers and travelers from sun flares, meteor showers and many types of weapons, should they ever be attacked. :o)
